||Presents a systematic review (12 studies with 752 participants) to identify correlates of physical activity (PA), which shows promise as a modifiable lifestyle intervention for dementia.

A secondary analysis (9 data sets reanalyzed) showed as correlates increased energy intake, resting metabolic rate, fat free mass, gait speed, global motor function, overall and physical HRQOL, higher levels of social functioning and reduced apathy, as well as taking 4 medications, dizziness, lower ADL function, a history of falls, less waking hours in the day, more autonomic problems and delirium were associated with PA
